In this market, starch, starch blended with polylactic acid (PLA), and starch blended with polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) are the major raw material used to manufacture biodegradable mulch film.  On the basis of comprehensive research, starch will remain the largest raw material for biodegradable mulch film over the forecast period due to its low cost compared to other raw material and is also abundantly available.

Within the biodegradable mulch film market, food & vegetables will remain the largest crop type over the forecast period because biodegradable mulch film maintain soil temperature, speed up the germination and cultivation cycles, long-term sustaining of nutritious soil, reduce the use of herbicides and pesticides, keep fertilizers and nutrients closer to the plant, and prevent fruits & vegetables from direct contact with the soil.

Asia Pacific will remain the largest market over the forecast period due to increasing demand for food products from economies such as India, China, and South Korea, and increase in per capita income.

BASF SE, Kingfa Sci & Tech Co Ltd, BioBag International AS, RKW Group, and AEP Industries Inc. are among the major manufacturers of biodegradable mulch films.
